About EFFEFF) is the a first line of defense when freedoms in the networked world come under attack. EFF was founded in 1990 and has championed the public interest in many battles affecting digital rights. From the Internet to the iPod, technologies are transforming our society and empowering Americans as speakers, citizens, creators, and consumers.
Blending the expertise of lawyers, policy analysts, activists, and technologists, EFF achieves significant victories on behalf of consumers and the general public. EFF fights for freedom primarily in the courts, bringing and defending lawsuits even when that means taking on the US government or large corporations. By mobilizing more than 61,000 concerned citizens through their Action Center, EFF beats back bad legislation. In addition to advising policymakers, EFF educates the press and public.
EFF is a donor-funded nonprofit and depends on your support to continue successfully defending your digital rights.
